The fall is always so busy around here, and this year has been no exception. Our days are full of school and work and play, and though it is still muggy and the cicadas continue to sing, the lazy days of summer are fading in our memories. Instead there are daily walks home from school, slow and sluggish in the September heat, where the kids chat with their friends, visit all the neighborhood dogs, and occasionally find friendly critters to keep them company along the way. Lola Gray has started orchestra and continues to improve by leaps and bounds. Fletcher had a self-portrait in an art exhibition and has renewed passion for drawing. There have been visits with friends, trips to the park, birthday parties and sleepovers. There has been blissfully little homework but lots and lots of music.
Just ordinary life. And yet I find myself continuously overwhelmed by how extraordinary it is. I am so lucky to share my life with such amazing people.
